Hello Dan, I am a great granddaughter of Charles (Carl)Henke
of St Louis (married Anna Wetske) raised their family at what is Arnold,Mo. My grandfather was Henry, who raised his family at Hillsboro and then they moved to the Yakima Valley. Henry is buried in Ill. Another granddaughter Judy lives at Arnold and has been doing all she can to make the history of Charles live in the community. This year there will be the wedding picture of Charles and Anna, The Henke Station that was located in the middle of their property in the Arnold historical calendar. There have been pictures in the last three years. The post office they ran has been moved to Kimswick for preservation.He and several sons are listed in the Jefferson County census.
We are looking also for Anna's history, we don't have very much there as of yet.
We are trying to obtain Geneology from Shirley Stallings. She says she has papers and pictures collected by the last three generations. She recently sent Tintypes of pictures dating to Charles and Anna. We are trying to distribute all we can, as far as we can so as not to loose this history.
She is the daughter of Freda Henke and probably the last of that generation.
There are a number of pictures and contact with cousins in that area as well as in Washington State.
